LINCOLN Meade residents took to the streets on Saturday, October 19 to distribute pamphlets for the community meeting to be held on November 9.

The purpose of the meeting is to establish the Lincoln Meade resident and ratepayer association. At the meeting residents will get to nominate fellow residents to a resident and ratepayer association committee and thereafter office bearers will be elected.

There is a movement to establish and revive resident and ratepayer associations in Msunduzi and to set up a resident and ratepayer association umbrella body that would comprise all resident and ratepayer associations in Msunduzi.

Residents in Msunduzi are mobilising to take back their residences so that they are safer and cleaner, and seek to work with their local ward councillors. Residents are frustrated by the Msunduzi council and poor service delivery and the formation of a resident and ratepayer association umbrella body will hold those in power accountable.

Co-ordinator of the resident and ratepayer association umbrella body, Anthony Waldhausen, said: “The residents are taking back their city and will establish resident and ratepayer associations in their respective areas one area at a time. The umbrella body will be non-political, accountable and transparent, united in our diversity, be an advocacy, consultative and a pressure group that provides solutions and root out corruption in all spheres of society. It will also provide capacity building support to resident and ratepayer association committees and structures.”

Lincoln Meade resident are encouraged to attend the community meeting on November 9 at 2 pm on the field across the Lincoln Meade store on Grimpthorpe Avenue. Please bring your own chairs or picnic blankets.

For more information, contact Anthony on 072 536 2978 or Jacyn on 082 863 0291.
